The aim of this project is to create a safety device which helps an individual feel safe in a public or private environment.
The device will be able to send a message asking for help to their friend or family and transmit their location.
The purpose of the application is to give people a sense of safety wherever they are.
The steps involved in the construction of the system were research, design, and testing, which were carried out throughout and after implementation. Results from the testing show that the system can send a message using more than one micro:bit controller module, using one as a transmitter and one as a receiver.
Further work that could be carried out includes adding a GPS module that would be able to get the exact location.
